WMG’s Cyber Security Centre is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow in psychology to work on an EPSRC project on Detecting and Preventing Mass-Markting Fraud (DAPM). The project involves understanding the psychological and criminal aspects of online mass-marketing fraud (online scams, such as romance scam etc). The successful applicant will work with a multi-disciplinary team, and be involved in co-designing to help identify and prevent mass-marketing fraud.
This project is ambitious and innovative especially in its approach in drawing from a range of disciplines (psychology, computer science, criminology, media & communication), methods and partners to generate new knowledge and innovation. The position is especially looking for a social scientist (in particular one who has knowledge and methodological skills in psychology).
If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD thesis, any offer of employment made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Assistant at Level 5 in the University’s grade structure and with a salary of £28,453. Once your PhD has been awarded and we have evidence of this from you, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at Level 6 and with a salary within the range stated above.
